Despite being about 80 miles away from home, this was a line up I felt I couldn't miss. Jim Bob - Carter USM front man - supported by fellow 90s icons S*M*A*S*H and Midway Still.



Only the second time I have seen them live after catching them at the Portland Arms in Cambridge in March 2007. There's no website for the band, no fansites either now, so you need to keep your ear to the ground to see what they're up to.

I still rate the band's self-titled debut mini album from 1994 as an almost perfect selection of songs for an EP and I think all of them got an airing in their set including these two.
